    LB by committee?

    I know everyone wants an every down MLB, but if we don't draft one I think we actually had a good thing going last season. What do you guys think about going forward with Boley as the only 3 down LB? Something like:

    Base: Boley - Goff - Kiwi (with Herzlich and Jones as depth)

    Nickel: Boley - Williams (with Paysinger as depth)

    proven not to work by our basement ranked defense.

    As it currenlty stands. If Kiwi or Boley get hurt we become the worst defense in football.

    need a real MLB.

    need a real MLB.[/quote]When we had a 'real MLB' like Goff our Defense was consistently ranked in the top 10, hell for alot of 2010 we were top 5 ranked Defense and the only difference between 2010 and 2011 was that we were missing our on-field DC in Jon Goff as well as our #2 CB with T2

    We dont need another LB in the high rounds of the draft (Unless its Vontaze Burfict), if we do draft an LB I would like us to look at a boom or bust kind of guy in the middle rounds

    Right but you have to realize that Goff can no longer be counted on. There's no reason to think he's going to come back and pick up where he left off and he's that much more likely to get reinjured. Plus he wasn't exactly Butkis to begin with.

    We have a handful of rookies who were good enough to make the team and contribute last year. I don't think it's crazy that out of all of those guys one could step up in his second season and be a starter.

    Not crazy but what quality of starter are we talking about? I don't think Herzlich is going to be a world beater anytime soon

    No but the point I'm making is that with our defense, and the amount of time we are in Nickel, LB is not as important, and we can use a situational rotation of "specialist" type of players instead of having a do-everything MLB that weighs 250 lbs and runs a 4.4.

    This may be a stretch, but I don't think you can have a conversation about linebackers now without including Chase Blackburn. I understand he was pulled in to fill a void, and fill it he did in exemplary fashion. His first play. am interception and in his last game, the Super Bowl, another interception that sucked the air our of Brady's sails.

    If he isn't brought into camp to compete, I'll be very disappointed.

    I forgot to leave him on but he should definitely be in the mix.
